"Better homes by better methods" ... is the reason that Lincoln Homes 
are now rated as one of America's finest factory built homes! The Lincoln 
Homes factory located in Belle Vernon, Pennsylvania, comprises over 70,000 
square feet of level working area, all under roof. 

Each Lincoln Home is the result of specially designed, efficient produc- 
tion methods. A 370-foot assembly line carries exterior wall panels to com- 
pletion. Precision power tools— and automatic machine equipment reduce 
assembly time to less than one half of previous building methods, 

Volume purchasing provides top-quality lumber and the finest of "name 
brand" component parts at the very lowest possible price. All materials are 
handled and stored under roof in Lincoln's completely enclosed warehouse 
facilities. 

Efficiency of organization that is achieved only through years of experi- 
ence brings you the finest home at lowest possible cost.
